Nothing gets past Emmerdale fans, especially when they notice a possible inaccuracy in a storyline. When Tracy Metcalfe (played by Amy Walsh) gave birth to her and Nate Robinson’s (Jurell Carter) baby, those watching at home were quick to spot how big the baby was considering it was meant to be newly born. Now, viewers have spotted an error the new mother made when she left her newborn upstairs, to sleep alone and unattended.
In a scene that aired last week, Nate came back from work and slumped on the sofa.
Tracy walked down the stairs and said: “You all done?” And he replied: “Yes I’ve got to nip back for an hour or two later, if that’s alright?”
“Of course, you’ve still got a farm to run! I know it’s not easy,” the new mother continued.
“I’d rather be here though, I thought you might’ve been asleep?” The farmer commented and Tracy explained: “No, but Frankie is.”
“Which means I’ve managed to get a load of stuff done. Laundry? What laundry. There’s some fresh coffee on the side if you want it.”
The baby then cried and the new parents heard her stirring on the baby monitor, but Emmerdale viewers questioned whether it was safe for Frankie to be left alone at such a young age.
As a result, the B&B cleaner’s actions have been branded “dangerous” and “irresponsible”.
Posting their thoughts to an Emmerdale fan group, someone said: “Ok this has been bothering me all night, Tracey in Wednesday’s episode, six days after having a baby she’s going for walks around the village and cooking dinner.
“Also the baby is upstairs and they’re using a monitor.
“I know it’s just a soap but safe sleeping guidelines are clear that you should be with baby in the same room until six months old.
“I know, I know it’s just a soap but it sets a really bad precedent.”
Someone replied: “I thought this too!” And a third added: “It’s really bad they’re promoting unsafe sleeping!”

The NHS website advises: “The safest place for your baby to sleep for the first 6 months is in a cot in the same room as you.”
The Lullaby Trish website also states: “The safest place for your baby to sleep is a separate cot or Moses basket in the same room as you for the first 6 months, even during the day.
“A large study of evidence from across Europe found that the risk of sudden infant death was significantly reduced when the infant slept in the same room, but not the same bed, as the parents.”
It comes after the actress spoke out about filming the labour scenes.
She told Express.co.uk and other press: “I just really love a challenge in this show of something that I’ve not experienced myself necessarily.
“I loved it and I asked people I loved and I really had them in my brain throughout the day, I felt like I had to do justice to how horrific it was because I knew my friends would be like: ‘Yeah, she thinks it’s that easy, good luck!
“So I properly went for it and I really enjoyed it. God knows what it looked like, it definitely won’t be glamorous!” She laughed off.
Emmerdale airs weekday evenings at 7pm on ITV.
